Culvers – August 8th


A hot and muggy Saturday afternoon brought out about 25 MINIs (and Minis) for some socializing and good food.   Lots of newer and potential members were there, and we got to see a few people who haven’t been to an event in quite some time.  We had club members arrive from as far north as Milwaukee area, East from Indiana, and Northwest from Huntley.   Rob from the Culvers in Downers Grove rolled out the red carpet for us by providing free custard treats, toys for the kids, and a big Welcome sign out front.

Big thanks to newer member Kate for getting things rolling, and to Culvers of Downers Grove for all the hospitality!!
